Dash of Sass: You Are Enough.

EnoughIt can be tempting to look at the lives of others, particularly in a selfie, social media-driven, “look at me, look at me!” world & feel like you just don’t quite measure up. But today I want you to remember this: You see only a quick snapshot out of an entire scrapbook. Five minutes out of a 24-hour day. The highlight reel rather than the whole game. So don’t compare your down times to their up times, because it’s not a fair comparison. You ARE enough. Your life, as is, is beautiful & purposeful & meaningful & completely unique. Their path is their path & it might be great…but nothing can be greater than wholeheartedly embracing your own path. It IS enough. You are not lacking just because you don’t have what they have, do what they do, or look how they look. They were equipped with the tools they need for their unique path & you were equipped for yours. Now start walking it!

    Thank you Mandy Hale

  4. This reminder was very much needed, dear Mandy, so thanks for sharing! It’s sometimes hard to NOT compare ourselves to others (esp. those our age) we perceive as more [insert positive thing here] than us. To deal w/that, I also always try to remember that they may be lacking in areas I have lots of, so it’s all a healthy balance. My duty is to just keep improving for my sake and to compete w/only myself so I may have a great future.

    As a side note, I ordered your Vegas book in April after you announced on IG you’d be giving a free tee to those who bought it but I haven’t gotten mine :(! I’m way disappointed and I’ve already emailed you about this but to no avail. Hope you see this and let me know what’s going on. (Please?) Thanks, Mandy. God bless and happy Monday!

    Just because I’m not on social media all day socializing with people I don’t really know, doesn’t mean I’m not enough. It just means I don’t need that much attention from strangers!! I’m more than enough…..

    What you say is so so true, especially in today’s world where almost everyone is about ‘putting on a show – for the camera and for the world’

    It took me 49 years to realize my worth. As a child so desperately wanting approval from my Father, never got it. My ex husband verbal abuse because of his own insecurities. “Your too F—fat for anyone to want you!!” Are the words that were carved into my brain. Although attractive, I’m obese. I settled with the fact that my ex was right. Two months ago, I decided to change my way of eating and I’m losing weight. But before I made that decision, I had to clear my mindset. I am good enough! Heck, for most men, I’m too good. I say this only because of the types of guys I’ve met over the last six years. I’ve always been a happy person, I encourage everyone around me to love life, love themselves too. I do love myself. I just gave up on me, but not anymore!! I am a woman of the King of Kings! He made me a unique person. I love me! I am enough.

    Thank you. Even though I know that I do the best I can, I constantly struggle with inadequacy issues. This was good to read just after I woke up.

    There are times that I find myself wanting to know how “So &So” is doing and I end up comparing my failures to their accomplishments. I’m going through so much that, at times, I just pack on with the negativity with comparisons. This is well written and I’m going to try to keep it in mind. Thank you!

    That moves to hear because I have been doubting myself, if I am ever good enough for anything. Thanks for the wise words.
